Wild rock & soul singer Be e Smith traces elements of her life-a rming new album ‘The Good, The Bad & The Be e’ to her childhood in rough Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Musically, it connects to the gospel music she heard in church and the soul music on the corners. No party host would regret pu ng on this pla er! The Brooklyn, NY na ve enlisted Drive-By Truckers’ Ma Pa on and engineer/ drummer Bronson Tew as producers at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, MS; Pa on has previously helmed projects by Jimbo Mathus and the Dexateens as well as contributed to albums with Dom Flemons, Seratones, and Candi Staton. Pa on says, “We wanted to get heavy into her rock side. Even the ballads on this record hit hard. We were pulling from Ike & Tina, Be y Wright and Be y Davis, stu like that.”
